'Queeny Purple' Hollyhock is a compact, award-winning cultivar that blooms in exquisite upright, double-frilled, red-violet blossoms. Staking is not on the task list when growing this vigorous plant! A pollinator favorite, it is best planted in multiples to encourage reseeding, perfect growing along a wall or fence to create a summery cottage garden feel. Sunny sites are preferred, but 'Queeny Purple' Hollyhock tolerates part-shade. (Alcea rosea)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
'Queeny Purple' Hollyhock is an AAS (All American Selections) award winner, tested for superior garden performance by horticulture professionals across North America. Though Hollyhocks are short-lived perennials or biennials, they reseed copiously in the garden. This allows the gardener to annually enjoy the vertical display of frilly flowers and rounded leaves that typify the flower’s cottage garden look. Generously sized frilled or single flowers are very attractive to spring and summer pollinators, and they also make excellent cut flowers. Flowers open over a long period from the bottom of the stem upwards, and contrast particularly well with whites in the garden. Grow in a sunny location in average soils with excellent drainage. Cut back stems as flowers fade to encourage reblooming. Leave some seed pods to ripen if you would like it to self-seed.
